Parsva Shah, Web Editor

Parsva Shah is currently a junior at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, pursuing a double major in Philosophy and Law & Society. He’s worked previously as a Staff Writer, writing about both political and John Jay student affairs. 

Parsva’s passion for writing is intertwined with his deep-rooted love for reading. He enjoys reading court cases, philosophy works, and political commentary. As a Staff Writer, Parsva enjoys exploring different viewpoints and representing opinions on important issues that impact the John Jay community. 

In the future, Parsva plans to go on to law school and serve the New York community as an attorney. His pursuit of law school is entrenched in his dedication to civil rights and constitutional law. He is also a part of the BMI Rising Scholars of Justice Program as well as part of the Office of Student Research and Creativity.

Parsva’s favorite story he has written is “CUNY Student’s Reaction to the Migrant Crisis.” Although a hot-button issue, understanding different points of view to create a cohesive article was a process that allowed Parsva to grow as a writer and a journalist. 

A quote that inspires Parsva is “Journalism is history’s first draft”. He’s driven by his passion for helping people express their opinions and hopes that as a Web Editor, he could mentor staff writers and help them publish meaningful articles.
